TOGAF spirit

TOGAF spirit

Sustainability I discovered TOGAF some times ago, and it has sounded to me as a revelation: a new insight on how to build and maintain a sustainable Information Systems (IS). Sustainable here means a way to survive with minimal effort. Wait… I’m not saying that TOGAF brings off-the-shelf solutions, I dare even say that it doesn’t […] more…

Agile & Modeling new way of life!

Nice title, isn’t it? I’d like to share the idea that we can associate agile project management and software development  practices (two different things!) to build sustainable software.
